about

Crowds and Power is a revolutionary work in which Elias Canetti finds a new way of looking at human history and psychology. Breathtaking in its range and erudition, it explores Shiite festivals and the English Civil war, the finger exercises of monkeys and the effects of inflation in Weimar Germany. In this study of the interplay of crowds, Canetti offers one of the most profound and startling portraits of the human condition.

Editorial Reviews

"Canetti dissolves politics into pathology, treating society as a mental activity--a barbaric one, of course--that must be decoded." -Susan Sontag
